Government Tracking Verizon Subscribers Calls?

According to the British newspaper the Guardian, the U.S. Government is collecting some information from cell phone subscribers on the Verizon network.

Though information collected does not include names or addresses of specific subscribers, the order given by the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court has Verizon handing over information on a daily basis.

NBCNews reports this.

Signed by Judge Roger Vinson of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in April, the order requires the “production of certain call detail records,” and is set to expire on the evening of July 19, 2013. The order pertains to information including the phone numbers making and receiving the call, as well as the time the call was made and how long it lasts. It does not include the “name, address, or financial information of a subscriber or customer,” according to the order.

So the question is, are you being tracked?
